Hi Brian

That's System->Preferences->Sessions-Startup programs. But it wont remeber 
anything added on either of my systems (ubuntu 7.04) and it wont let me set 
the order or priority either. Would be nice if it did but tis either broken 
in this respect on my sys or maybe need to be root? But in ubuntu that 
doesn't seem to make sense as I understand it. Another thought here. I'm 
guessing this modifies a script somewhere. Anyone know which one? Maybe I can 
modify it directly?
